* MisaimedFandom: In a similar vein to the fandom that has arisen around several of the ManChild-yet-badass characters of ''{{Spaced}}'' and the Film/BloodAndIceCreamTrilogy, some fans have latched on to Gary King as an example of the ManChild-yet-badass rebel who plays by his own rules and lives every day like he was still a teenager seemingly without it fully registering that Gary is actually a {{deconstruction}} of that type of person; his life is shown to be pathetic, empty and miserable, his hedonistic and self-centred lifestyle has cost him all his friends, and towards the end he outright comes out and admits that the main reason he acts like he's still a teenager is because he's accomplished nothing else in his life and it's the only time he remembers being truly happy.

* JustForFun/XMeetsY:
** If the [[Series/DoctorWho Autons]] stole from the ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers'' playbook, it would be this movie.
** It's ''Literature/TheStepfordWives'' meets AlienInvasion. Almost everyone in the film is a StepfordSmiler: the town, Gary, Andy, and Pete in particular. (Steve and Sam are just CannotSpitItOut victims.) Heck, Edgar Wright stated the Blanks are based on the movie poster (seen on the film's trope page.)

* WhatAnIdiot: What, you guys just realized that [[spoiler: the town has been taken over by androids]] and you let [[spoiler: Ollie go to the toilets of the next pub]] by ''himself?'' Buddy system, guys! Justified in that they were already a little buzzed by that point.

* AccidentalInnuendo: Gary loves these. When the Network talks about "penetration points", Gary giggles and makes a "fucking pussy" gesture with his fingers with a whistle.

** JerkassWoobie: Gary and, to a lesser extent, Andy. Gary's pretty selfish and only cares about completing the Golden Mile, but then you find out what his life has been like, and that the closest thing to a success he's had in his whole life was a failed attempt at a pub crawl. Andy is constantly serious, always talking down to people (especially Gary) and criticizing everything he does. But, when you find out ''why'', you can understand why he's so cynical.
